Since the launch of Topex/Poseidon, more than 23 years ago, satellite altimetry has evolved in parallel with the user community and oceanography. As a result of this evolution, we now have:
- A bigger choice of products, more and more easy-to-use, spanning complete GDRs to pre-computed sea level anomalies and gridded datasets and indicators such as MSL index or ENSO index.
- a mature approach, combining altimetric data from various satellites and merging data acquired using different observation techniques, including altimetry, to give us a global view of the ocean;

Different services are available either to choose between the various datasets, or to download, extract or even visualize the data. 2014 - 2015 saw several changes:
- opening of the Odes service
- mobile/light version of the web site
- Filament datasets in cooperation with LOcean
Moreover, the web site was restyled in Feb. 2014, with a strengthened partnership with Legos/CTOH; the Online data extraction service with X-Track, CorSSH with a format change, Peachi and "enhanced" GDR products (see dedicated poster).
In the future, we will develop even more the ice, coastal and hydrology thematics on the web.
